Audiences are finally seeing Thor: Ragnarok and they are loving it. The film received an “A” CinemaScore from moviegoers, making it the ninth consecutive Marvel Studios release to earn such a grade. The high rating should propel Thor: Ragnarok to a big opening weekend (and beyond) at the box office.

Marvel Studios has a stellar track record with audiences. Ragnarok is the studio’s 13th film to receive an “A” CinemaScore or better (12 films got an “A” while The Avengers got an “A+”). Marvel Studios has three other films that scored an “A-” while only one release out of the studio’s 17 features fell completely out of the “A- to A+” range (Thor got a “B+” in 2011).

Thor: Ragnarok has the positive word-of-mouth it needs to finish its domestic opening weekend north of $100 million. That figure will boost a worldwide total that already included over $180 million in international receipts coming into today. The film is well on its way to being the biggest earner in the history of the Thor franchise and could become Marvel Studios’ third release above $700 million, or even over $800 million worldwide this year.

Thor: Ragnarok, masterfully directed by Taika Waititi, is playing now at a theater near you.
